The UPS truck delivering fryers to the Bristow Duck Donuts caught fire while traveling on Interstate 5 in Thurston County, Washington June 30.

Local CBS affiliate KIRO-TV reported that there were no injuries and authorities said the vehicle’s brakes caused the fire.

Although the damaged packages included Duck Donuts’ fryers, store owner Ryan Sloper did not believe the incident would not delay his store’s opening.

“The fryers really won’t hold us up,” Sloper said.  “The distributor was really great and got a new set of fryers out the end of last week.”

Sloper expects them to be delivered late this week and intends to meet his anticipated July opening date.

Residents have expressed excitement over the opening of the Outer Banks favorite donut franchise.
